Leaks are actively spilling information on the upcoming Google Pixel 4a smartphone. Recently, the handset was spotted in multiple live shots through which it was confirmed that it will be arriving as the first Pixel series phone with a punch-hole display. A Cuban technology YouTuber, TechnoLike Plus, has shared a hands-on review of the unannounced Pixel 4a handset. The video also reveals the entire specifications of the smartphone. The launch date of the smartphone is yet to be confirmed. With the rumour mill leaking almost everything about the handset, it appears that its unveiling may not be too far away.
The YouTuber claimed that he found the Pixel 4a on sale at a local phone shop. When he contacted the shop, he was provided some videos and full information on its specs. The smartphone shown in the hands-on appears to be a prototype unit since it has a fake logo on its rear and a code number. The design of the phone matches with the CAD renders that were released by reputed tipster OnLeaks a few months ago.
